Written by Amida from Journey into Unschooling.
Another year, another day in the life! I can’t believe I’ve been writing these for the past four years!
Choosing a day to represent your homeschool is no easy feat, but this time around, I thought I’d share how a typical day went when I was uninspired and just winging it (and I’m sure we all have our moments).
The day started off very slowly. I knew I wanted my 8-year-old to get some work done, but was just very unmotivated to get started.
Then I spotted some left over origami paper from the bookmark projects we had worked on a few days ago (nothing ever gets put away around here) and got totally distracted and started making dolls.
Hey, they were pretty fun! I shared my procrastination funk with my friends online and they were very motivating. “That’s art! And culture! And math!” they said.
Sure, except I was the one doing all the work, and well, I kind of graduated 3rd grade years ago.
